    I got these 2 Wethers yesterday from our neighbor. Their 2 girls bottle raised them. But they didn't have time to take of the goats anymore, and didn't want to sell them at the auction for meat, so they sold them to me [​IMG] The goats are 5-6 months old.
    Can anyone tell me what breed they are?


    This guy definitely has some La Mancha in him. I'm not sure if he' purebred or not though

    This guy might be a Nubian, or an Alpine or something like that?? [​IMG]

    Yep, the second guy looks either Nubian or Nubian cross - The first looks LaMancha, probably pure. Some have ears a little bigger than "nothing."

    I'd say the first one looks like a Boer x Lamancha cross (cute goat!) and the second is possibly a Nubian cross.
